KOR Energy to Develop Rooftop Solar in U.P.

Indian solar power solutions provider KOR Energy announced that it is preparing to develop 2.8 MW of grid-connected rooftop solar projects for industrial customers in Uttar Pradesh.

The company will develop the capacity at four separate project sites. One project calls for a 1.2 MW rooftop solar installation at Apollo Metalax Ltd. in the Secunderabad Industrial Area of Bulandshahr, while another involves the installation of a 1.2 MW rooftop solar project at Apollo Pipes Ltd.’s plant in the Dadri Industrial Area of Gautam Budh Nagar.

A smaller, 200 kW rooftop project will be installed at the industrial shed of KV Aromatics Pvt. Ltd. in Greater Noida, while another 200 kW rooftop system will be placed at Hindustan Mint Private Ltd. in Chandausi, Moradabad.

KOR Energy will utilize REC Solar’s twin peak modules and ABB Inverters to develop the projects.

Projects designed for captive consumption have been driving the bulk of growth in the rooftop sector. A spate of rooftop solar tenders has been announced by various organizations that are vying to bring down their electricity bills and curb their emissions. Be it colleges, upcoming Smart Cities, railways, airports, ports, or manufacturing units, all of these entities are finding it advantageous to make a one-time investment in a rooftop solar system to meet their energy demands.
